Are you interested in helping bees? Find out about a native bee that you can help. Most people only know about honey bees and bumblebees. Learn about a super pollinator native bee. Just seven of the blue orchard mason bees can pollinate as much as 500 honey bees! Come to learn more about best practices and some recent changes in our advice. You will see inside blocks and tubes filled with mason bee cocoons and learn more about pests that affect them.
